Ecologic History of the Oxfordian Sponge Assemblage in the Polish Jura Chain

  • J. Trammer

Abstract

The Polish Jura Chain is among those areas in Europe (Fig. 1) where the Upper Jurassic strata contain sedimentary rocks rich in siliceous sponges (= sponge megafacies of Matyja 1976; Malm reef belt of Wilson 1975; see also Gaillard 1983, Fig. 130). The sponge megafacies varies in its stratigraphie range. In Germany, for example, it ranges from the Oxfordian through the Tithonian (see, e.g., Ziegler 1977; Meyer 1977, Fig. 1). In the Polish Jura Chain, the sponge megafacies is confined to the Oxfordian.
